Not so much a bug, but a feature that was removed.
#1
In previous versions (the last version I used was 1.3.0-734), when you were in the console log, after you changed/added/disabled cheats, whichever. You could drag the scrollbar down, and it would automatically update whatever cheats were active or changed, and also state again how many cheats were loaded (this is due to the update that it did). This is no longer possible apparently in 1.3.1. Is there any way of returning this feature? It was handy to quickly enable or disable codes this way. And now I have to restart the entire game every time to make one minor change to a code.

[Edit]
Nevermind, it seems the cheats are being updated still, it's just not showing in the console anymore? I still think this particular part should be returned. I understand the whole 'console cleanup' thing was implemented to make it look cleaner, but the cheats that were loaded etc, is still an important part of being shown imo.

The issue was that it would display all the cheats every time you change aspect ratio or modify other unrelated config, and it would just spam the console with these patches messages.

So now you only see a summary of the patches at the console and only once when the game boots - unless you enable at the console sources: Dev/Verbose, at which case you should see all the patches messages again.

Updating the cheats shouldn't have changed, but let me know if it you think did change.

You do not have to restart the entire game to enable a cheat.

You just enable the cheat in the pnach file while the game is running and then just fast-forward a few seconds and the cheat will be enabled.

Actually going to kick this topic back up.

It doesn't say whether cheats are enabled in both the console window, AND the emulog now.
This is problematic if we want to help users identify bugs, because now we have to ask every time if they're running any cheats, and in the past it would show up in the emulog, saving a bit of time on this part.

Can you at least make it so that it shows up in the emulog.txt file whether cheats were enabled or not?

What exactly was it showing before that it doesn't show now?

As you can see, the cheats section is gone in emulog.txt

It shows WS patches fine in the logs, but regular cheats no more.

Please provide exact steps to reproduce this, preferably starting with a clean portable instal directory.

e.g.:
- download pcsx2blah-blah.7z and extract it, put the bios files at the bios directory, run pcsx2 and accept the default plugins, cdvd -> choose iso, fast boot.

- result with earlier versions: A, B, C
- result with newer versions: X, Y, Z

Also, you mentioned earlier that something changed at one or more window titles? please put all the issues you find from these two commits in one clear post. Thanks.

Tested on freshly downloaded portable versions from buildbot;

PCSX2 1.3.0-882 - Emulog still shows when cheats are enabled or not.
PCSX2 1.3.0-883 and beyond - Emulog no longer shows whether cheats are enabled or not.

How to reproduce:
Just get an emulog by starting up pcsx2 and run a game with cheats enabled.

Above is what it SHOULD show. And that's correct.

That's all that's being shown now in that particular section. No mention of regular cheats at all.


Quote:v1.3.0-883: patches: reduce console noise for patches/cheats - 1. When changing settings, such as aspect ratio, patches message was spamming the console, now they don't.
v1.3.0-884: patches: move verbose from ELF-log to Dev-verbose - improvements from the previous commit stay (less noisy, better reboot verbose)

As I mentioned in the OP, I understand that you originally implemented this to clean up the console, but having it inside the emulog made it easier to troubleshoot issues with users who were experiencing freezes, etc.
Because we could tell right away from an emulog whether cheats were enabled or not. I don't see any reason to remove this entirely from both the console -and- emulog.txt file.

121-884 moved it to the dev/verbose, so please don't test 883.

So the only thing which is missing is mentioning the regular patches?

What about the title of some windows which you mentioned earlier?

Hope this makes everything right: https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/commit/56b2c00

If in devel build mode or if the console devel/verbose source is enabled - all patching info is printed whenever it's applied (typically when any configuration changes) - including patches which were previously only printed on boot - such as games db patches.

Else - it prints all the patch info (including the info which was moved to devel/verbose on 883) only on boot.
